A film made in Louisiana, about Louisiana, starring an adorable young lady from Louisiana, Beasts of the Southern Wild, a Winner at the Cannes Film Festival and the Sundance Film Festival opening in New Orleans on July 4th…
“The film is gripping audiences around the globe for its portrayal of the spirit and resiliency of the people of south Louisiana through the fictional tale of a motherless young girl trying to hold on to her place in the world – that place being a small, tightly-knit shantytown on the bayou just beyond the government’s levee protection system”
From the New York Times:
“The standout of this year’s Sundance and among the best films to play at the festival in two decades, “Beasts of the Southern Wild” isn’t an obvious studio-dependent title. Directed by Benh Zeitlin, who wrote the screenplay with Lucy Alibar, the film is a magical realist tale, as well as a hero’s journey, set in a gloriously mythologized part of southern Louisiana nicknamed the Bathtub”.
